“Who Was Bill Pitt Anyway?” Answers to that question will come from people who knew him in the 1950s, following a potluck strawberry supper and meeting of the Colrain Historical Society on Thursday, July 9. The event will be held behind the G. William Pitt House at 8 Main Road.

Founder of the Historical Society and its first president, Pitt was an author, musician and theatrical personality, who grew up in Colrain and summered there as an adult. He left his family home to the town and the Historical Society.

The potluck picnic supper, with strawberry shortcake and iced tea provided, will be at 6:00 p.m., followed at 7:00 by a business meeting. The program in the Stacy Barn will be at 7:30. Picnickers are asked to bring a main dish or salad to share, along with their place settings.

The program, and potluck, are free and open to the public. For more information call Belden at 624-3453.
